We invite the community to learn more about coexisting with the black bears of Connecticut on Friday, May 3 at 11:30 am in the Community Room at the Roxbury Town Hall.

The free, informative talk will be led by Paul Colburn, a graduate of the Connecticut Master Wildlife Conservationist Program and a certified Master Wildlife Conservationist. Paul is a dedicated advocate for wildlife, passionate about sharing his knowledge and is focused on teaching the community about living responsibly with wildlife.  

The “Black Bears in Connecticut” presentation focuses on the history of black bears in Connecticut, an overview of black bear habitat, diet, behavior, reproduction and current research efforts. It also provides practical recommendations for optimum coexistence with our black bear population. Black bear artifacts will be shared with the audience.
